Playing pitch and indoor built facilities strategies

Cheshire East Council has engaged with Sport England and a range of sports National Governing Bodies about outdoor and indoor sports facilities and what will be required to meet future needs.

This has involved collecting information about existing facilities across the borough in terms of the specific sports facilities they offer, their usage and their condition.

There are two elements to each strategy – an assessment report and a series of action plans.

  • The assessment reports set out up-to-date supply and demand information. They also consider the demands arising from the planned level of growth proposed in the Council’s Local Plan Strategy to 2030. The sports National Governing Bodies have been closely involved in completing this work to ensure that this information is as comprehensive and up to date as possible. Cheshire East sports clubs and schools have also had a full opportunity to input into this work. The involvement of all of these organisations has been very important and is greatly appreciated. This engagement will continue in the implementation, monitoring and review of the Strategies.
  • The action plans respond to the issues arising from the assessment reports.

The strategies will help to inform Planning and investment decisions by the Council and for a wide range of bodies seeking to provide high quality sports facilities across Cheshire East.
